YA Highway RTW: The Changing Seasons
This Week's Topic: How does your writing (place, time, inspiration) change with the seasons?
I'm not routine enough to actually have a changes in my writing. However there are a few things that change.
FALL: For the past few years fall has been dedicated to NaNoWriMo. Although I have never actually finished a NaNo Novel. A lot of time and effort goes into planning it or thinking about planning it. It's pretty backwards I know. Once November hits I get pretty focused on working on that particular piece of work. (or thinking about working on it, then not really) Strangely all of my unfinished NaNo novels are set in the fall. Interesting. That might change for this one.
WINTER: Okay this is really weird but ever since my junior year in high school I've had this idea for a Christmas YA novel focused on Santa's daughter. Every year around Christmas time I write a few paragraphs or hand write a couple pages. I've never actually got around to actually writing it because once Christmas is over I lose the drive to continue working on it. Weird I know.
SPRING: This isn't really writing related, but usually in spring I run around like a chicken with its head cut off flailing my arms around screaming "I'M NEVER GOING TO PASS MY CLASSES!" True story. Though I do that year round.
SUMMER: Summer is the time where I get the most writing done. I'm usually back at home and more relaxed.
